All - PASIG (Preservation Archiving Special Interest Group) and its
events is relevant to the NDSA Infrastructure group, so I am passing
this along.

Save the Date! PASIG Webinar "Digital Preservation in Theory and
Practice", February 12 8:30am PT

We are initiating a monthly webinar series in order to share PASIG
content and insights beyond the annual meeting (next one scheduled May
22-24 in Washington, DC). The first webinar will be offered by Tom
Cramer, Chief Technology Strategist, Stanford University Libraries, on
February 12. Tom has consistently been highlighted as one of the top
presenters at the PASIG meetings and we feel this content is germane to
a broad audience involved in Digital Preservation. 

Enrollment details for this webinar will be publicized in the next few
days. Please Save the Date!

Webinar Name: 

Digital Preservation in Theory and Practice:
A Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG) Boot Camp

By: Tom Cramer
Chief Technology Strategist
Stanford University Libraries


Over the last two decades, digital preservation has emerged as a
critical challenge for institutions looking to provide longterm access
to their information assets. This webinar will introduce some of the
fundamental needs and concepts that underpin digital preservation, and
provide a practical, hands-on survey of the best practices, tools and
strategies in preservation that have emerged only quite recently. 

The content of this webinar comes from the introduction to the
"Preservation Bootcamp" developed for and delivered               at the
international PASIG meetings, a semi-annual exchange of architectures,
operations and best practices of digital preservation among
practitioners, researchers and industry experts. The PASIG Bootcamp
provides an introduction to the field and needs in digital preservation,
and give attendees a foundation of concepts, terminology, standards and
tools used broadly in the field. This “Digital Preservation 101” event
is targeted specifically for those looking to gain exposure to the
field, or current practitioners looking for a review of the formal
concepts or broad set of tools currently in use.
